Design & sustainability is our passion.

Shou Sugi-Ban is a Japanese technique of treating wood by burning. Every cabin is clad in Shou Sugi-Ban siding, using local Yukon spruce. The black siding inspired the project’s name

The cabins are finished with a hand-troweled clay plaster. This earthen plaster is more delicate than your typical drywall, but it creates a beautiful natural hue. You can expect to see some nicks and dings in the surface.

At the back of your cabin you will see a small truth window which reveals the interior insulation – straw bales. Each north wall of the cabins features straw as an infill insulating material, which has a low embodied carbon footprint.

Our sauna available excusively for our guests

Cozy sauna with a view

Our sauna is custom built and heated by a Finnish wood stove. Featuring sustainably harvested clear grain cedar, the sauna is scribed into a small fissure in the rocky landscape. The benches are built around boulders, and the Shou Sugi-Ban siding melds into the rocks.

Please book a time with the link provided in your reservation.
